The Israeli online daily Haaretz conducted a poll on Tuesday, revealing that the Kadima party, formed by Sharon will harvest 37 seats at the Knesset, while the Likud party would get less that 10, the Labor party remained holding still at 26 seats.
The results were published by Haaretz on Thursday night.
Haaretz reported that the poll, which was conducted under the supervision of Professor Camil Fuchs, revealed that 66% of the individuals who voted for the Likud in 2003 would vote for Sharon in March 28, 2006.
16% said that they would vote for the Likud again; the Likud party has not elected yet its chairman to succeed Sharon, this issue may account for its low showing in the polls, Haaretz reported.
The Shinui party might drop down to only five Knesset seats, especially since most of its voters are moving to Kadima. Shas party also slips to 10 seats, losing one to Labor.
Yisrael Beiteinu party, headed by Avigdor Lieberman, is expected to achieve six mandates, Meretz 4 since it is expected to lose two seats to Labor, United Torah Judaism will garner six mandates, National Religious Party and National Union will attain nine seats, and the Arab parties will hold steady at eight mandates in the coming Knesset.
